Staffs are friendly and helpful. Overall a nice and comfortable place to stay in Hakuba. Justin and his team have done a great job in running the whole lodge. If only the private bathrooms are slightly bigger, that would be perfect indeed.

Firstly i loved Hakuba, me and my husband totally enjoyed the snow and ski... we were lucky enough to witness some snowfall in april. Staying at Penke Panke was the best decision, Justin is a fantastic, responsive host... always happy to help, always smiling. All the ppl at Penke Panke like Maryuma, Dave, Mizou (i think) were all extremely warm... More

Justin and his team are simply excellent. From start to end they helped us to enjoy an amazing ski trip. Travelling with 3 kids under 10 can sometimes be a challenge, so what did Justin to do help make it easy? Planning - 1 - sourced transfer transport according to our budget 2 - gave us a choice of rooms,... More

Thank you so much for making our stay so pleasant at the Lodge. Justin couldn't be more helpful and all the other staff were lovely. The lodge went out of its way to drive us around Hakuba and were very accommodating. I would definitely recommend coming back.

Justin and the team have it sussed and make it easy to have the trip you want. I went as a first timer to Japan and couldn't be happier. The 2 days of fantastic powder at Cortina certainly helped... along with the lifts up in the mini-van. Value for money - excellent. Staff - brilliant. Services provided - spot on:... More

4 of us stayed at PenkePanke in March 2014. It was our first trip to Japan and Penke came recommended from a friend. We couldn't have been happier with the lodge. The staff was super helpful and made our stay so easy. The included breaky was awesome. You can walk to Happo One and there are shuttles to Cortina if... More

Having never been to Japan to ski we decided to take our 2 sons ( in the twenties) for a family ski trip, due to medical reasons we had to postpone to a later date. The owner was really helpful in accommodated us with new dates and even worked out rooms that would suit all of us. The staff were... More

Stayed as a group and had a great time. Very helpful staff, really friendly attached bar and plenty of areas to relax and hangout out in the evening. Close to lifts at Happo. They offer free bus services to local onsens, shops etc and plenty of advice and help on we're to ski/board.

We stayed with small group of lads (5 in total) and had a 3 bed room (double bed and bunk) and the other 2 shared 2 singles. Small but exactly whats you need. The people make the place and for this reason you should stay here. Perfect for families, groups and couples. Great bar and food make it the best... More
